Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 243 / Wednesday, December 18, 2019 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES and legal basis for the request, and must identify the specific portions of the comment to be withheld from the public record. See FTC Rule 4.9(c). Your comment will be kept confidential only if the General Counsel grants your request in accordance with the law and the public interest. Once your comment has been posted on the public FTC website—as legally required by FTC Rule 4.9(b)—we cannot redact or remove your comment from the FTC website, unless you submit a confidentiality request that meets the requirements for such treatment under FTC Rule 4.9(c), and the General Counsel grants that request. Visit the FTC website at http:// www.ftc.gov to read this Notice and the news release describing it. The FTC Act and other laws that the Commission administers permit the collection of public comments to consider and use in this proceeding, as appropriate. The Commission will consider all timely and responsive public comments that it receives on or before January 17, 2020. For information on the Commission’s privacy policy, including routine uses permitted by the Privacy Act, see https://www.ftc.gov/site-information/ privacy-policy. Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement containing a consent order from Incentive Services, Inc. (‘‘Incentive Services’’ or ‘‘Respondent’’). The proposed consent order (‘‘proposed order’’) has been placed on the public record for 30 days for receipt of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After 30 days, the Commission will again review the agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement and take appropriate action or make final the agreement’s proposed order. This matter concerns alleged false or misleading representations that Incentive Services made concerning its participation in the Privacy Shield framework agreed upon by the U.S. and the European Union (‘‘EU’’). The Privacy Shield framework allows for the lawful transfer of personal data from the EU to participating companies in the U.S. The framework consists of a set of principles and related requirements that have been deemed by the European Commission as providing ‘‘adequate’’ privacy protection. The principles include notice; choice; accountability VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 Dec 17, 2019 Jkt 250001 for onward transfer; security; data integrity and purpose limitation; access; and recourse, enforcement, and liability. The related requirements include, for example, securing an independent recourse mechanism to handle any disputes about how the company handles information about EU citizens. To participate in the framework, a company must comply with the Privacy Shield principles and self-certify that compliance to the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’). Commerce reviews companies’ self-certification applications and maintains a public website, https://www.privacyshield.gov/ list, where it posts the names of companies who have completed the requirements for certification. Companies are required to recertify every year in order to continue benefitting from Privacy Shield. Incentive Services is a company that works with organizations to improve performance of individual employees through service award programs, performance incentives, and loyalty programs. According to the Commission’s complaint, Incentive Services published on its website, https://www.incentiveservices.com/, a privacy policy containing statements related to its participation in Privacy Shield. However, it only initiated an application to Commerce for Privacy Shield certification, and did not complete the steps necessary to participate in the framework. The Commission’s proposed onecount complaint alleges that Respondent violated Section 5(a) of the Federal Trade Commission Act. Specifically, the proposed complaint alleges that Respondent engaged in a deceptive act or practice by falsely representing that it was a certified participant in the EU–U.S. and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks. Part I of the proposed order prohibits the company from making misrepresentations about its membership in any privacy or security program sponsored by the government or any other self-regulatory or standardsetting organization, including, but not limited to, the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield framework, the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield framework, and the APEC CrossBorder Privacy Rules. Parts II through V of the proposed order are reporting and compliance provisions. Part II requires acknowledgement of the order and dissemination of the order now and in the future to persons with responsibilities relating to the subject matter of the order. Part III ensures notification to the FTC of changes in corporate status and mandates that the PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69379 company submit an initial compliance report to the FTC. Part IV requires the company to create certain documents relating to its compliance with the order for 20 years and to retain those documents for a five-year period. Part V mandates that the company make available to the FTC information or subsequent compliance reports, as requested. Part VI is a provision ‘‘sun-setting’’ the order after 20 years, with certain exceptions. The purpose of this analysis is to aid public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the complaint or proposed order, or to modify in any way the proposed order’s terms. By direction of the Commission. April J.
